Rickey Gadson is the most famous motorcycle dragracer of our generation, earning 11 national championships and remaining highly visible over the past couple of decades. The Philadelphia native is also well known to Motorcycle.com, as his long association with Kawasaki has brought him to every ZX-14 media launch since the bike’s introduction in 2006. Gadson also rode with us when I chased 200 mph on a Kawi H2R.
